FORT MYERS, Fla. - Oct. 28, 2014 - PRLog -- AquaMobile Swim School announced that it has been named to the 2014 Empact Showcase by Empact, an organization that celebrates the impact and diversity of young entrepreneurs.

Now in its fourth year, the Empact Showcase recognized Diana Goodwin, President and Founder of AquaMobile Swim School as being among the United States’ “Best Companies Started & Run by Young Entrepreneurs”.

"I am honored and thrilled to be part of such an amazing group of innovative young entrepreneurs and hope that during the Empact Showcase event, we can learn from one another and further our impact on the economy."

Empact Showcase companies were started and are run by entrepreneurs who are age 35 and under. In 2013, the companies comprising the Empact Showcase contributed more than 10,000 jobs to the economy, and controlled over $1 billion in revenue.

Founders in the Empact Showcase will be recognized for their achievements at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City in October. Past celebrations have taken place at the White House and United Nations.

  “Young entrepreneurs are having a big impact on our economy, and it’s so powerful to have so many of these leaders in a room together,” said Sheena Lindahl, Co-Founder of the Empact Showcase. “Many of the companies are social enterprises that are also making a huge difference in people’s lives. It is never an easy road to build a successful organization, and we believe it’s important to celebrate all the spirit and grit these entrepreneurs have put into making the world a better place.”
